Are they self supporting?

How can I convince my students not to use Wikipedia? I require two or three textbooks plus a lot of my students buy the four or five optional books I put on the syllabus. The latest issues of all the relevant journals are at the library. They still insist on going to Wikipedia. I think they're tuning me out when I mention Wikipedia. Just another anti-Facebook, anti-Wikipedia grumpy old man.

I doubt you can do it due to restricted curriculum, but find a topic in Wikipedia you can use in the classroom to prove to the students the information there is biased or outright untrue. I know smoking/tobacco is one, but like I said, I doubt you could use that one. Find the topic you can use, then ask them to edit it to the truth...
